Will Fehrenbacher’s two-run double gave the Diamondbacks a fourth-inning lead and the Davis Little League Majors-division team never looked back in a 4-3 victory over the Nationals last week.

Strong pitching from starter Luke Carrell, winner Cam Knutson and closer Zach Carrell (who got the save) carried the D-Backs.

Cole Bertran added a double and Rockwell Lybbert, Mark Datangan and Andrew Bell had key singles.

Bell threw the potential tying run out at the plate in the final frame.

Lev Farris Goldenberg had a three-strikeout inning on the mound while playing brilliantly in the field — combining with Caden Difuntorum on a double play as the Nats committed no errors.

Kenny Wanderstadt doubled, Cameron DeMasi poked two singles and Adam Hasson, Zach Bergevin and L.J. Schwartz contributed base hits.

In other Majors play …

Brewers 8, Cardinals 1 — Winning pitcher Hunter Olney got solid relief help from Tyler Brown and Kai Taylor and terrific fielding by Nathan Bitners at first base.

Brown also hit a home run, Will Ziegler contributed a double and single and Taylor launched his own two-bagger.

Jack Henry Grote’s first-inning single plated Ethan Feil, who had doubled, for the Cards’ only tally.

Grote, Feil and Travis Cosgrave all fanned four in their pitching duties.

Marlins 7, Diamondbacks 4 — Shinye Ho went 2-for-3 and drove home two and Joseph Cobb’s spectacular outfield catch and two RBIs paced the Fish.

Caden Neel doubled with an RBI and Tyler Kim, Luke Scoggins and Finn Thomsen added singles. Pitchers Ho, Kel Williams and Neel combined to strike out 10 Diamondbacks.

Doubles from Zack Carrell and Andrew Bell, and Ethan Lo’s single, were the offense for the Rattlers. Rockwell Lybbert threw two effective innings and Cole Bertrand’s diving catch was turned into a double play.

Angels 11, Brewers 10 — George Simmons’ base hit drove home Nate Barclift with the winning run as Sam DeWit, Casey Freese (triple, two RBIs), home run-hitting Lance Pressel and Mark Scheiber provided the rest of the firepower.

Freese picked up the win.

For the Brew Crew, the bats were also busy …

Tyler Brown hit a pair of doubles, driving in three runs. Knox’s two doubles resulted in an RBI and Kai Taylor had two singles and a run batted in. Ava McCray tripled and drove in another tally while Hunter Olney doubled and Matt Haass singled.

Olney, Nathan Bitners and Will Ziegler combined on a double play and McCray’s pitching limited the Angels in the fourth and fifth innings.

Cardinals 12, Marlins 1 — Scoring all their runs in the first three innings, the Cardinals used home runs by Travis Cosgrave and Jack Henry Grote to cruise home.

Cosgrave went 3-for-3 with three RBIs and Grote’s first-ever homer helped him drive in three more teammates.

Standout catcher Chris D’Angelo had two singles and Ethan Gross doubled.

Grote and Ethan Feil whiffed 10 Marlins in combining for the win.

Caden Neel singled in the first and stole home for the Marlins’ only run. Neel also singled in the third. Nathaniel Thompson and Finn Thomsen had other hits.

Sean O’Hara and Shinye Ho recorded web gems and Thomsen fanned two batters in the second.

A’s 13, Orioles 8 — Ethan Ramos singled, doubled and homered while Billy Easton homered and singled for the winners.

Ramos drove in two runs while getting plenty of help from the rest of the lineup …

Patrick Stodden drove in three runs with a double, single and sacrifice fly and Josh Catacutan added a double and single. Gabe Murray, Ryan Berry, Charlie Easton, Jordan Painter and Gabriel Lee each had additional hits.

Aaron Margolis was a fielding standout and pitchers Charlie and Billy Easton and Berry were tough.

Nate Ade’s three-run homer paced the O’s. Owen Schwab and Brennan Peiffer also had important safeties.

Michael Leistikow, Tyler Herrera and Ade were strong afield, Kyle Kordana pitched a shutout fifth inning and Peiffer, Kayden Hoal and Danny Honeychurch were slick on the base paths.

Giants 8, Nationals 3 — A triple by Aedan Enriquez and well-placed hits by Luke Dugger, Eric Lengtat and Giacomo Sorrentino paced the Giants.

Griffin Long and Sanchez were tough customers on the mound as the Giants remained unbeaten.

(The Nationals did not submit a recap)

Red Sox 2, Tigers 1 — Owen Millward was awarded the victory after Collin Yee, Kooper Kijanka and closer Payne Barksdale pitched terrifically in relief.

Jack Chavira, who singled, was driven home by Millward for the winning run. Yee singled and scored and Evan Belk added a hit.

(The Tigers did not submit a recap)

A’s 5, Angels 2 — Ryan Berry hurled two effective innings, walked, doubled and knocked home two runs.

Behind double plays by both Charlie Easton and Patrick Stodden, the A’s emerged with the win.

Charlie Easton and Billy Easton had scoreless efforts on the mound, striking out seven between them, and Aaron Margolis, Billy Easton and Ethan Ramos each drove in runs.

(The Angels did not submit a recap)

Tigers 4, Orioles 3 — Theo Blewitt’s single started a two-run fifth inning that was capped by Adam Dapkewicz’s two-run line drive, putting the Cats over the top.

Jack Walsh’s double and hits by Jack Carsel and Garrett Emmons were good for the Tigers’ two, second-inning runs.

Dapkewicz and Gabel Longshore added key safeties.

Dapkewicz and Emmons pitched well and solid base running from Ryan Cuvelier and Geo Gil helped. Shaan Nahal’s nifty outfield catch ended the game.

For the Orioles, Derek Lerman was 2-for-2, including an RBI ground-rule double.

Nate Ade and Lerman were solid afield, as were Owen Schwab and Danny Honeychurch.
